Written by Brian Clevinger
Art by Scott Wegener
Colors by Ronda Pattison
Letters by Jeff Powell
Red 5 Comics
Released February 8, 2012
Cover Price: $3.50

One of the amazing things about Atomic Robo is the way each story arc has managed to tell its own kind of tale. We’ve had war stories, pulp adventure stories, and horror stories. With Atomic Robo and The Ghost of Station X, we get a full-fledged mystery, and with issue #5, we finally learn who has been behind the various problems that have been besetting Robo for the previous four issues. What we learn is surprising and a little heart breaking, and is just another example of why this is such a great series and why it should be on everyone’s reading list.

Price: $3.50
Release date: February 17, 2010

For three years now, Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener have been presenting us with the ongoing adventures of Atomic Robo and his fighting scientist. They’ve given us stories of giant Nazi killing machines, walking pyramids, and monsters from beyond all time and space. I’ve read this series since the beginning, and I have to say that this is the best issue of the series yet.

The mix of comedy and action has been this series strong suit from the beginning, and it remains one of the best things about this series, but artist Scott Wegener has really improved since the first series and maybe this is just the first time I really appreciated that fact. He has become a master at laying out the panels on the page in the best way to tell the joke. The layout of each page is very simple; four or five panels each page, but the images that he chooses for each page work perfectly. The storytelling is rock solid, and everything about the art makes this comic work.

Available now

In its amazing release in October of 2007, Atomic Robo is back and he has come bearing a fatty of a war epic! Taking on Nazis, giant insects, and crazed destructive machines, there is nothing that can bring down the wise cracking robot, Atomic Robo. Creators Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener take what was great with the first volume and continue with an enticing and amusing storyline. Atomic Robo: Dogs of War – Part One doesn’t skip a beat. Our hero is pushed right into the heat of a proverbial death ray of action.

In case you didn’t catch the first series (which I highly recommend), the story follows along in a historical fiction aspect. In 1923, the Austrian inventor, Nikola Tesla, was nearing the end of his career when he unveiled a marvelous creation. A robot with automatic intelligence, deemed Atomic Robo. AR was granted American citizenship in return that he becomes the major combatant to a 1938 top secret military utilization. Tesladyne is the name of the organization, headed by AR and handful action scientists that are the go-to folks for abnormal enemy activity.
